I don't know about you, but Fridays are so much easier to face than almost any other day of the week. Knowing that dress is casual, dinner is pizza and I can stay up as late as I want, really gives me a big smile throughout the whole day!
Fridays, I think, are also a day of reflection. What did I do right this week, and what could I have done right this week? I don't beat myself up anymore, for mistakes, misstates and stupid stuff. I just remind myself that God loves me no matter what, and as long as I keep trying, I will eventually "get it right."
I can remember (yes, sometimes my memory does go back farther than 10 minutes) the days before kids and responsibility...Fridays were meant for going out and (partying)socializing. Yes, I used to do the drinking thing, as well as the cigarette thing, but kids change things. Now Fridays are order out, kick-back, watch TV and fall asleep around 9:00. How sad is that? You know what? That's okay.
It's Homecoming Week for the girls. Edwina played in the Powder Puff game last night. It was Junior women against the Senior women. (The seniors always win no matter what!) Earlier in the day, the school put on a mock drunk driving accident, where students volunteered to be injured victims, as well as, fatalities. It was meant to make a statement about drinking and driving. Kudos to the school administrators! It was very moving for many. One girl watched her twin sibling being zipped up in a body bag. Reality at its best. Did they get the message?
On a lighter note, one amazing thing about my Fridays is that Rock comes home for the weekend. His college is close enough that he can do that. I love this guy! And, if I only see him for 10 minutes, that's okay.
Well, time to pop in another pizza, and feed Tootsie! Have a wonderful Friday!
